"Fred" - An unconfirmed change in how Google ranks web pages is freaking some people out
|March 11, 2017||View for printing|
For many, if not most businesses, getting found online is critical for drawing in new customers. Today's customer is searching for services, products, advice and entertainment on Google. The higher we're listed, the better chance we have of getting new business.

These experts are tasked with helping their clients get the highest ranking possible on a Google search so that they can generate more website traffic, attract leads, increase brand awareness and ultimately grow revenues.
